How do I recover a deleted bitlocker partition?

#1 Post by starrxu » 01 Oct 2013, 07:40

I have a 80GB hardisk partitioned into 100MB (system), 24.43GB (windows 7) and 50GB (data). The data parition has been bitlocker encrypted using windows 7. When I was at the windows installation wizard, I accidentally deleted the data partition, system partition and the windows 7 partition. I was able to recover the windows 7 partition and system partition using Test Disk quick scan. When I boot into windows 7, the 50GB partition is showing as "unallocated space" in the Disk Management (see attached screenshot). Would you be able to advise how do i recover the data partition? It does not show up in the Test Disk scan.
